for the new secretary of state. with u.n. ambassador susan rice still considered president obama's first choice, mccain's new assignment could result in an intense showdown. that is an understatement. >> his new favorite role is taking on susan rice, and i think -- >> that's all he has been doing is taking on susan rice. >> he is on to this one. it's going to be a great test for the president. it's clear the president wants to nominate her. it's clear he has not made that decision final. if he does, there's going to be a heck of a fight. it's going to put republicans in a box. they're going to have to make some decisions. at least lindsey graham and john mccain seem to be of one mind on this. >> going back to john mccain, though, this is a case of senatorial stalking. he was -- he had to give up the chairmanship of the armed services committee. he was term limited out in terms of the republican roles, so he went looking for another place where he could kind of do the same thing. >> he has found a corner of his own, but i think what is ironic here, mark, is that the republicans have ralli

america is all about. >> final point, senator durbin. susan rice. will she be the president's secretary of state nominee and could she get confirmed in the senate at this point? >> i can't say that because the president has not told me what his decision will be. there have been two excellent names mentioned, ambassador rice and my colleague, senator kerry. either one of them would have a tough job following the great job of hillary clinton, but they could both serve this country in an extraordinary way as secretary of state. >> you're saying that rice could get confirmed? >> i do believe so. i think at the end, some of the criticisms against her have been unwarranted. many have gone just too far. there is really a basic feeling of fairness. she is an extraordinary person. she's certainly well educated and has really served our nation well as ambassador to the united nations. >> all right. we'll leave it there. senator durbin, congressman mccarthy, thank you very much. >> thank you for having us. >>> coming up, the showdown over the debt. who wins and who loses? including why one promine

. >> stephanie: cranky old john mccain wants to be on the committee to yell questions at susan rice. >> hey i wonder why. maybe it's because he's out of committees because he's termed out of all of the major committees. maybe that's because republicans have limitations on how long you can be on a committee and he's done all of them! >> stephanie: dick durbin was asked if he would be approved. he said he thinks so. some of the criticisms against her have been unwarranted adding she's an extraordinary person. john mccain wants to be able to -- huh? benghazi! >> stephanie: what do you think? everybody is saying is it going to be john kerry or susan rice? what do you think? >> i think susan rice is a great candidate for that. i think actually john kerry is really apparently wanted state but people have talked about him for secretary of defense. i think you could almost have a flak nearly as big with him going for defense as they would susan rice. purple band-aid brigade would be out again. then they would play his tapes

clinton finally came out and gave a strong endorsement to susan rice. some people, including maureen dowd, would suggest maybe that took a little longer than was necessary. >> it was striking. it was striking how long it took. and it didn't go unnoticed, obviously. >> she's traveling. >> you see john kerry being embraced by republicans. i think a lot of democrats would also like him to be the next secretary of state. where are we in that fight? we have so many issues that are on the front pages now. i think the president needs to get his person in as soon as possible. >> well, my sense is that secretary clinton weighing in perhaps suggests that the nomination is coming soon. i've talked to people on all sides of this. there's no question that benghazi continues to be litigated. even on the democratic side, there is some division on this. i've talked to democratic senators who have questioned whether she has the standing, the stature, to be secretary of state. so obviously there's some division about how people view susan rice. but here's the bottom line. she's very close to the president

believe it is coming. >> on susan rice the clock is winding down president clinton signed for next month and there's the regulation that a decision would have been made by now as to who will replace her. is there a hold of? >> there is no holdup. the president has made no decisions and i have no announcements to make. >> about the decision to allow the corporate for the inaugural activities, why did the president change his mind on that? >> i think he's taking questions on that. i haven't had that discussion. >> the president was a part of the transition in 2008, 2009. the announced the reason they were sitting limitations was to put the country on a new path. this is not the division, this is a presidential decision. >> but that is handling questions like that. i haven't had a discussion with anyone here in the committee so i would address your questions there and i am sure they are taking questions like that. >> is the thinking that the president or the white house wants to get this fiscal cliff situation settled before the president starts making any announcements about the nomination

over the fiscal cliff in january, senate democrats will be less eager to take on susan rice as the secretary of state nominee. they've said the president would win that fight. they don't want to worry about the massachusetts seat. but if they have all this stuff swap into january. >> a related issue -- >> no, i have a feeling this is not going to be related at all. >> very related. willie, what do you think the life expectancy is in new york city? >> male or female or just overall? >> anybody. what would you think? >> i'll say 81. >> it's 81. >> is it really? >> howard wolfson just tweeted -- >> i made that up. >> move to new york city. it is a remarkable thing. >> thanks. >> that gotham is -- you live longer here than you do on average in the rest of the country. 81. >> i pulled that out of thin air. i figured it was slightly higher than the national average. >> it's not 81. it's 80.9 years. i'm a politician, though. i round up. i gave you that. you live, in new york city, if you live here, till you're 87, on average. >> there it is. >> it's going to be 100. >> coming up --
